1970 MG T-SeriesNOTE: This car was built on a 1970 VW Chassis in 1981. Given the British exterior and German interior the I dubbed it - Sir Fritz.
Sir Fritz is the smile car. Everyone who sees him… smiles. It is also the FIRST PRIZE WINNER at the WarBirds on Parade Air and Car show this year!! (Picture of award in the gallery above.)
This eye stopping MG-TD Replica was built in 1981 on a 1970 VW Chassis and is titled as such. It has been in my hands for many years and kept under roof in the mild climates of Houston, exas. It is in very good condition. It was recently prepared for sale-with new a new battery, ew spark plugs, ondenser, nd new tires, mproved top and side curtains. Sir Fritz runs and drives great… and generates constant toots, alutes, aives, nd smiles. Classic Styling with the unbeatable reliability of a VW.
I bought this car in rough condition on eBay in 2005. I had the engine reworked by a certified BMW/VW genius, arefully and lovingly repainted it, nd completely re-did the interior (except dash - original and simple and gorgeous). Then I had a new top and side curtains hand made to fit and work with the new color scheme. Top down is addictive, owever... Brakes are new, ngine completely updated and tuned, ew tires. $12,500 later... He is gorgeous and fun.
This is a toy. It is for fun. It is LOTS AND LOTS of fun, nd certainly an eye magnet. It can do over 60 on level ground and is very stable at that speed. Higher speeds are possible but it is not designed to be as stable at those speeds. A tank of regular gas will run you for a LONG time.
I have purchased and redone five cars on eBay and this is the only one I have hung on to for myself. Only had time to drive him twice last years so... time to let him go to someone who wants to play... So... If you love someone who would love this... it is JUST IN TIME for Christmas Depending on price I will deliver within 300 miles of Houston... free. Otherwise shipping is on you.
Comes with a bag of tools to keep everything tight including a snap replacement kit for the hand made roof and side curtains. Snaps can break off or separate when very cold. A snap-kit fixes that in 30 seconds.
If you have always wanted a TD (the owner had since 1972!) this car is 1/4 or less the price of the "real thing," MORE dependable, asier to find parts for and keep running, nd 100% of the fun.
Will consider partial financing for a sufficient down and terms to get my price.
